DPS chemist and HazMat taking a sample of the liquid
HOLBROOK, AZ (CBS5) -
Arizona authorities seized $100,000 worth of liquid PCP during a traffic stop and arrested four Arkansas residents.
The woman and three men were traveling in a rented SUV on Interstate 40 near Holbrook when a Navajo County Sheriff's Office deputy stopped them for a traffic violation Monday.
The deputy became suspicious when the group gave conflicting stories, sheriff's investigators said.
The deputy used a drug detection K-9 to sniff the vehicle. The K-9 alerted to the odor of illegal drugs coming from a two-gallon plastic gasoline can in the rear of the vehicle. Authorities found 11 pounds of PCP.
Jeremy Ford, 27; Christopher Kelly, 19; Jeramy Sanders, 27; and Kimberly Brown, 22, are being held on $25,000 bond each on suspicion of transportation and sales of a dangerous drug.
PCP, a hallucinogen, is a highly addictive synthetic drug that when mixed with petroleum-based liquids becomes an unstable mixture of chemicals.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety sent a chemist, an Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team and a Hazardous Material Team.
The DPS chemist took samples of the liquid and determined it contained PCP and unknown petroleum products. A DPS Hazmat Team removed the liquid and container to a safe location.
Using a small explosive device, the liquid was destroyed. The DPS Hazmat team monitored air quality before, during and after the destruction.
